Very Informative

I found this book to be very informative. Excellent information for doctors and treatment centers dealing with detoxification and substance abuse to gain an understanding of why people self medicate. It would also be a benefit for primary care physicians to gain an understanding of substance abuse and drug detoxification.

Extremely insightful book

This book is revelatory. I understand a great deal more about the neurobiological factors of addiction whereas there tends to be a focus on the emotional and social factors. I believe this is a crucial text for anyone working with addiction as it gives an experiential and well balanced view of the inter-relation and inter-connectedness of neurotransmitters based on years of clinical observation. It adds another dimension to the addicted brain and there are fairly straightforward solutions - Policy makers and clinicians take heed!
